October brides,

Did you guys order your invites yet? When do you plan to send them out? We're trying to figure that out now.

    Ours is 10/24/2020!Smiley heart The invites have been ordered and sent.

    Before anyone comes at me for sending invites too early, we're having a destination wedding and wanted to give our guests enough time to plan accordingly. They have all been incredibly grateful for that extra time.

    We are 10/16/2020 and plan on ordering them in the next 2 weeks and want to send them out between July and August. Our wedding is a Friday wedding so I was to give my family who is all out of town time to take off work and plan a little for a Friday wedding. Plus I just want to get them sent out and be done with worrying about about Sending them lol

    We are getting married on 10/10/2020! I am in the process of making the invitations. Since I am DIYing, I can change the date if I have to postpone. I am planning to send it around August. Many people have been bugging me about postponing or not.

    I’m the same as Kate - our invitations were just sent last week for our 10/23/2020 wedding since over half are traveling from out of town. We wanted to give everyone as much time as possible to figure out A) if they are comfortable traveling and/or attending and B) arrange their travel arrangements. Also so we can get an idea earlier if people will decline and notify vendors that it will be a much smaller wedding than expected.

    We got married last October. We ordered our invites in April because there was a big Easter weekend sale, so we saved money ordering then. We sent our invites out in August. The typical timeline is 6-8 weeks before your wedding. We sent ours around the 7 week mark.

    10/10/20 bride here! I'm currently in the process of designing my own invites. I plan to also wait until the end of summer to see what our state says about guest count and weddings for the fall season. I am in CA. Then I will probably send them out early August. Most of my guests are local, or within driving distance.

    10/10/20. We will be ordering the invites in July once we know where we are having (depends on state guidelines at that time). We plan to send them to immediate family end of July and then whatever other guests we can invite in early August. As stated above, you typically want to send them 6-8 weeks in advance. Good luck!

    I was wondering the same thing! I'm 10.10.2020 and I know that typically they go out 6-8 weeks before the wedding, but I was wondering if they should go out earlier because I'm getting a lot of questions due to the epidemic. Ours are all ready to go so now we're just waiting for the appropriate window. I was thinking first week of August?

    I’ve picked my invites, but I won’t order them until June /July. Everyone on our invite list knows when our wedding is, and most of our guests are local, so we have the luxury of waiting a bit.

    I’m having the same issue. Ours is 10/24/20 and we just sent the Save The Dates last month and have been waiting to see what happens with the state regulations (we are in NJ). I’m thinking of ordering in June/July and sending in early August.

    I’m 10/10/20 and we plan on sending them in July. Everything is ordered just need to be assembled! I am hoping by July things will be less crazy and people will be open to travel. Our wedding is in a small town about an hour and a half away from 98% of the guest list. I only have one family coming from out of state.

    Our wedding is scheduled for 10/10 and in the process of ordering them now and sending out before the end of June. We are about 3 weeks behind, but that's because of venue has been shut down and awaiting their reopening before we get the invitations printed.

    10/10/2020! I plan on sending mine beginning of July. Most of my guests are coming from out of town. I sent my Save the Dates early (January) due to most guests travelling. I am also CONSTANTLY getting bugged about postponing - I am having my wedding no matter what, my venue and vendors are on board so if people don't want to come then they don't have to. Also want to get a guest count early to help with planning. What date are you October brides doing for RSVP date? I am thinking 6 weeks since my venue needs a headcount 4 weeks out it gives me time to track down stragglers!? What do you guys suggest!?

    10/10/20 and invitations are pretty much the only planning task remaining. In February I ordered samples and we decided on the one we want.... and then COVID19 😫. We already sent our save the dates in January, which included the wedding website for information. So all of the wedding details are known and the invitation is just a technicality. Given that, we’ll send them in August.

    I didn't send my STD until March, and there were people encouraged me to wait until June. I am getting really annoyed with people bugging me as well. Right now, my RSVP date is 9/9. Again, I can change this any time since I am DIYing. For you, 6 weeks is good time.

    We are working on picking ours out now, and hoping to send them out in late June or mid July..? I'm unsure about the right timing too. Our date is October 3rd so we were thinking about asking RSVPs to be back the first week in September. I'm wondering now should we get the invitations to them by July or is that too soon? I'm also debating early August and that gives them a month to send the RSVPs back. I'm thinking with everything going on, the more time they have the better..? What do you think?
